*Make sure to use large, soft, plump, moist medjool dates or the batter won’t come together as well or be as sweet.
** Vegan? Leave out the egg and use 1 full banana, rather than just a half. The bars will not turn out as fluffy, but they’ll still taste delicious!
***Not into chocolate chips? Try walnuts or pecans or stay tuned for my Pumpkin breakfast bars coming later this month.
****I line my baking pans with parchment paper so I don't have to use any spray, but do what works best for you.
*****I take them out at 30 minutes because my family likes them better as super moist, but if you like them best with a chewier edge, leave in for a few more minutes.
Also, these are just sweet enough, especially with the chocolate chips, to be considered dessert, but I also eat them for breakfast and snacks. Sweetening with medjool dates gives them a subtly-sweet taste, but doesn’t make them too rich, so they’re a versatile little bar. YUM. Enjoy!
